    Indeed an interesting article, haven’t been to this place before although I’ve done a fair share of traveling around Europe.

      Thanks, Bradley. You should visit Moldova if you’re looking for a different experience! 😀

    I have been to both Romania and Ukraine and yet not to Moldova, which is an oversight, having read your post. I didn’t know that it’s the poorest country in Europe, perhaps an opportunity to support those in the tourist industry there by visiting and spending locally, especially since one’s budget goes a long way as you say. With an interest in 20th century history, I think I’d appreciate the remnants of the Soviet era, as well as the more ancient sites such as the hidden monasteries.

    I am tempted to move to move to Moldova for a cycle after reading this article. Really cool piece about an eclectic part of Europe. I definitely see the the enteral transitions you speak of as the winds for culture blow from the east or west.

    You’ve inspired me to visit Moldova! It looks like a beautiful country, and I would specifically love to visit the old monstasteries. I had no idea that Moldova was such an inexpensive destination. It sounds very affordable- thank for including specific prices. I haven’t yet been to a country that was formerly part of the Soviet Union (other than Russia), but I really enjoyed learning about the history for these nations. Great post with great information!

    Thank you for this informative post about Moldova! I have never considered visiting there, but you have intrigued me to reconsider. The town of Soroca sounds so interesting with it’s Gypsy Hill expensive recreations of historical places. The beautiful red gold autumn colors you mentioned always call to me. That sounds like the perfect season to visit! Thank you for presenting an opinion of the country that differs from the norm.

    I was not aware that Moldova is the poorest country in Europe. So obviously, that makes it an easier destination for our pockets. I havent read much on Moldova. So this was an eye opener for me. The country looks beautiful. And I would love to visit some of those hidden monasteries with tonnes of history. And that wine cellar looks interesting as well.

    Moldova is such a surprise package. The Hidden monasteries, the greenery and the whole culture in general. Nice to know about their language nuances as well. The post was an interesting read

    I have been wanting to go to Moldova for a long time. In fact, I do have two friends from there who keep talking about the 200 km long underground cellar. Being a wine lover and a Food & Wine magazine writer, this is top on my 2019 list.
